News Around The World Juliette likely to skirt land, weaken LOS CABOS, Mexico (AP) — Hurricane Juliette, packing winds of 125 mph, tracked northwest along Mexico’s Pacific coast Wednesday, leaving behind flooded homes and rivers. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami called the storm a “potential threat” to Baja California, but said computer models showed it was likely to skirt land, gradually weakening and turning west. Juliette was centered about 260 miles south of the resort city of Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of the Baja peninsula, heading northwest at about 9 mph. The threat of the storm further emptied the nearly deserted Los Cabos resort, which was already suffering a sharp drop in tourism after the Sept. ll terrorist attacks in the United States. Forecasters called the Category 4 storm “still dangerous” even though the winds had dropped from a peak of 145 mph. Juliette is a massive system with hurricane-force winds reaching 70 miles from its center and tropical-storm-force winds felt 260 miles from the vortex. OPEC keeps mum on decision VIENNA Austria (AP) — OPEC delegates reached agreement late Wednesday on how much crude oil they would supply to a precarious world economy, but declined to formally announce the decision until after more talks on Thursday. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries gave no explanation for the delay, and delegates refused to give details about their decision as they left the cartel’s headquarters in Vienna, Austria. However, several delegates said earlier that OPEC is likely to stick with its current official output levels of 23.2 million barrels a day. A number of energy analysts shared that view. OPEC officials broke off informal talks earlier in the day without agreeing on whether to adjust crude output. They then met in the evening to coordinate a common production strategy. The delay of OPEC’s announcement was not a complete surprise, but it highlights the difficulty OPEC members face in trying to reach a consensus amid the intense economic and political uncertainty prevailing since the Sept. ll terror attacks on the United States. Groups: Don’t let Microsoft off easy WASHINGTON (AP) — A coalition of consumer groups sent a letter to state and federal prosecutors Wednesday asking them to be tough with Microsoft in the four-year antitrust case, calling for extensive business restrictions and allowing individuals to sue the company. The groups also wrote a 33-page report detailing their concerns with the upcoming Windows XP operating system, which will reach the public soon. “We urge the attorneys general, who represent consumers as plaintiffs in the case, to seek a swift and sure end to what we believe to be illegal leveraging of illegally obtained monopolies for the PC operating system and Internet browser,” the letter states.
